The jobs that time forgot

Standard

#1 Closing off the corridor

Working backwards – unravelling the tale of the 1:12 window

Most of the items listed in the captions are from the usual mix of suppliers, but the clock moulding is from Old and New Times.

For the rest of the back story here are some links re the making and decorating of the corridor and the building up of our Polonius figure hovering therein.

Feeling virtuous, having sorted one of the undone jobs, am considering moving on to the next!  I’ll let you know how I get on – assuming I do – get on, that is.

Threading the beads of the tale

A figure day

This man is no longer in his office (going or coming, I don’t know) just when the cat and the dog are ganging up on the rat (see previous posting).  Oops.

Wanting to smooth the connections between the different scenes, I’ve been trying out the figure in the corridor.  I took shots from every angle to see whether he worked out or not and thought I could share them.

Seems to link most of the visible areas with the possible exception of James down in the clerk’s office, but then he’s busy with the guy seated in the entrance porch with his baggage and the possible fight outside.  The private dining room, downstairs left, is doing its own thing, but it does house another cat and dog possible alliance, this time over a meat pie, so let’s call that a link for the moment.

 

 

The room of two parts

Standard

Before the ceiling is sealed in

I left off last time with a decision about the setting for the room:  no people, plenty of animals.  Today it’s just coming together ready for the adding of the ceiling, so certain photo shots will soon be impossible.  Here’s a taste of what there is before it disappears.

Back on the level

As we were with a few additions and alterations – photo taken with camera parked at the join of the two halves

You can see the floor disappearing under the balustrade/step overhang.

Alterations

and additions

The ceiling pieces and the A frame to match the gable wall are all cut, sized and ready and it’s about time I found out whether all the pieces really do fit or if it’s the ever lovely wishful thinking and my steamed up spectacles.
